The Lying Game Read Along #3 [Read Along Discussion]


  • We have a memory of Sutton at the pool with her friends, and Laurel, and Laurel's necklace and the mesquite thicket and someone holding a knife to Sutton's back.
  • Then we have Sutton going to the police.
  • The police have a Sutton Mercer folder for all the times she's cried wolf and they don't believe that she's Emma.
  • They drive her to school in the back of a police car.
  • All of her teachers at school think she's a devil child.
  • She gets the smallest uniform from Nisha, her tennis co-captain.
  • She goes home for dinner, to interesting conversation and Mrs. Mercer asking how Emma is.
  • She goes to practice tennis and finds Ethan on the court stargazing.
  1. What do you think about all of the things that were in Sutton's police file?
  2. What do you think about Laurel and Emma's relationship?  How do you see it going?
  3. What about Thayer?  Do you think he met the same fate as Sutton?
  4. What about Ethan?  What do you think their history is now after the tennis court interaction?  Their future?
  5. Should Emma tell Alex what's going on?
  6. Has your opinion on whether or not Sutton is dead changed?
Tomorrow's Reading:  Chapters 14-18; Pages 136-184
